Announcing a New STC WDCB Mentorship Program

STC WDCB is starting a new mentorship program for STC members hoping to move into a technical communication discipline or to further their technical communication career. The mentorship program will be led by Adam Bradley, who has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT). Within Adam's career, he has worn many hats (writer, editor, multi-media designer, user experience specialist, technical illustrator, and product developer) to produce technical training and publication solutions for the Department of Defense (DoD).

The mentorship program will provide career advice to mentees by offering one on one guidance through virtual live sessions and resume/cover letter critiques. Additionally, the mentorship program will support establishing new professional connections and referrals to a myriad of technical communication jobs.

Respectfully,
